West Bengal is rich in diversity of landforms -plain land,mountains,sea- the state contains it all.
This was my second trip to Digha from Kolkata.
The first train that leaves for Digha from Howrah station is Tamralipta express(Departure-6.35am,Arrival at Digha-9.57am)
There are a few other trains throughout the day from Howrah station.No direct trains are available from Delhi,Mumbai,Chennai or those distant states.One will have to travel to Kolkata first or to any nearby state of Digha in West Bengal from where direct trains are available.
You'll find a variety of hotels in Digha- both New Digha and Old Digha.Luxury ones such as those facing the sea,3star,5star as well as budget hotels are available but the price varies according to the season. Though New Digha is closer to the station,Old digha is also beautiful nd several modes of transport from station to Old Digha is also available.Digha is populated all throughout the year.
The Sea beach of Old Digha doesn't allow you to bath.So even if one is residing in Old Digha,he/she will have to travel to New Digha to take a bath in the sea.
We stayed at New Digha and in the evening travelled to Old Digha in a Motor Van to sit at the beach and enjoy the sea view.
For shopping purpose one can choose both New as well as Old Digha as both are rich in numerous shops.We made most of our shopping from Old Digha.
